With so many events going online, see how some amateur astronomers are able to take their star parties and school visits online - safely and without leaving their home. 

NSN members joined Amy Oliver and Brian Cummins on Tuesday, May 12 for an informal chat and asked questions about online presentations. The recording will be uploaded shortly.

In the meantime, take a look below at some great resources for online presentations. 

Speaker Information

Amy Oliver from the Smithsonian Astrophysical University will share about the recent online star party she coordinated with telescopes across the country. 

Share your best practices! Are you hosting star parties online and want to share what you're learning? This is a great spot to get questions answered and share our experiences.

Also, check out this video from NASA on How to Present Virtually to Students.  This video was created to assist staff at NASA who will be conducting or participating in virtual connections with students or the general public. It gives suggestions on how to prepare and set-up for your connections, what to wear/not to wear, and things to consider when speaking with children and non-scientist/engineer audiences.
